following interview was conducted at the Natsume
residence in Nerima, Tokyo. I arrived in time for
afternoon tea, which was very charmingly served by
Nuku Nuku. In the text of the interview, SN stands
for Sarah-neko, NN for Nuku Nuku and R for
Thank you. These are awfully good cookies. Did you
Yes, and Ryunosuke helped cut them out.
I must ask you for the recipe before I leave. Ahem.
So, I'd like to ask you a few questions about
yourselves, your lives, for this website I'm
Nuku Nuku - does it ever bother you to be the
centre of attention so often?
No! Nuku Nuku loves playing with her friends. I get
a little bored when no-one comes to play with me.
Of course, I have Papa-san and Ryu for
I was thinking more of the attention you get from
(blinks): From men?
You know, like Yoshimi-chan's uncle
Oh, right! He was so nice to me! But he was nice to
all of us. I don't think I was the centre of
What about the boys at school?
(laughs and waves her hands): They're just being
friendly! They've all been really kind since I
started there. I never have to carry my own books
or open a door or anything. I'm not sure why they
want to do those things for me, of course... I'm
lucky to have so many wonderful friends.
Do you have girl friends too?
You mean apart from Eimi-chan, Arisa-chan and
Kyoko-chan? Not really. I'm not sure why, but the
other girls at school don't talk to me a
They're just jealous because all the boys want to
talk to you.
Really? That's awful! I'll have to tell the boys to
talk to them too.
Uh, good idea. Ryunosuke, how do you feel about
having such a popular big sister?
It's okay except for having to answer the door to
the Interflora guy all the time. Some of them have
found out where she lives now.
And what's going on for you at the

Ryu, that's not a very nice thing to
Well, it's true. Have you ever noticed how scared
Ranma-san is of you? What's with
Maybe he just has a crush on her so he's
Do you run screaming from people you have crushes
on when they come to collect people from lessons?
One time when he couldn't see anywhere else to go
he went up a tree.
I think his little sister is scared of me
Ranma-san hasn't got any sisters.
He hasn't? She looks so like him!
Uh, I think we're getting a little off-track here.
Nuku Nuku, what are your plans for the
I'm going to take a nap and have a bath and see if
I can find any interesting-looking bugs.
Uh, anything more long-term than that?
She's gonna stay here with me and Dad, of course!
Or maybe we'll be moving back in with Mum. I think
maybe they're thinking about getting back together
but I'm not sure and I don't want to jinx
Mama-san sent Papa-san a chocolate mail bomb on
For Mum, that's really mushy.
Sounds interesting! I'll have to ask him about that
when I interview him.
You can still see some of it stuck to the ceiling
in the hall.
I'll have to get a stepladder and clean that
Is he home now? Could I talk to him?
Sure! He's in his little den.
Thank you both for being so helpful!
